What is UltraSurf?
UltraSurf is a free software which enables users inside countries with heavy Internet censorship to visit any public web sites in the world safely and freely. Users in countries without internet censorship also use it to protect their internet privacy and security.
This app is suspected of malicious behavior, though these accusations are in dispute. The software allegedly connects to websites of financial and government institutions, and uses the PC for attacks against them. It disables SSL certificate checks and allows man-in-the-middle attacks to steal authentication credentials. It hooks into the browser and uses suspicious compression to hide parts of the program.

While I won't comment on the controversy surrounding Ultrasurf (you can Google it), I will say that I've been using it for years without any issues. It does what it advertises, and that's good enough for me. People can keep worrying about all the evil things that people say about Ultrasurf, but then you might as well worry about getting mugged at night.
All I know is Ultrasurf is the only one-executable portable 2.5 MB download that allows me to access sites and services that I normally wouldn't be able to access. There's a competing app called Tor, but it's a big 47 MB download, more complex to set up, and I found it slow as molasses. However, if you're paranoid about your security, then you can try Tor (though Tor is not exactly bullet-proof either, like any other security product).
Because I can watch and play anything you want!
Tried it, could hardly get a Google page. Not usable - way too slow.
This program hijacks the browser in android. Even after uninstalling it, when I tried to open the browser, the browser tried to connect to the ultrasurf website.

Yes there are really conflicting views of UltraSurf! A article from networkworld 2009, (http://www.networkworld.com/news/2009/073109-blackhat-ultrasurf.html) suggests that the software is somehow a part of the chinese information surveillance..
Wired (if you live in the U.S., you probably know already what that is) wrote an article about the guys who made UltraSurf two months ago.
This isn't really proof for either side of the argument, but I think this is interesting enough to point out.
